If You’re Happy and You Know It: Feet Version
If you’re happy and you know it,
Stomp your feet.
If you’re happy and you know it,
Stomp your feet.
If you’re happy and you know it,
And you really want to show it,
If you’re happy and you know it,
Stomp your feet.
Repeat with run in place, jump up and down, do all three.
--Miss Mollie

The Hokey Pokey: Feet Version
You put your right foot in,
You take your right foot out.
You put your right foot in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey Pokey,
And you shake your feet about.
That’s what it’s all about!
Substitute left foot and both feet.
--Miss Mollie

Hi, My Name is Joe
Hi, my name is Joe.
I work in a button factory.
One day, my boss comes up to me and says,
“Hey Joe, are you busy?”
I said, “No.”
“Then turn the button with your right hand.”
Continue with:
Left hand, feet, head, whole body

Head and Shoulders
Head and shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes
Head and shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes
Eyes and ears and mouth and nose
Head and shoulders, knees and toes
Knees and toes!
-- Traditional

Craft
I made this template using Publisher and gave one to each child. They traced their feet on it and colored them in.
